         Have enough memory?
            How long will you be shooting?
            Which format will you be using – RAW, high jpeg, etc.
            Have the cards been formatted
in the camera?        

  Lenses and sensor
         Clean your equipment before heading out
  Camera setup
         Which mode - Aperture / Shutter / Manual / Other?
